NBCSN, RDS - 7:30 pm/et
Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA
The second half of a back-to-back against the Devils, who now hold the division and the conference lead. These are the kind of battles we expected with the shortened schedule.
Tomas Vokoun will be in net for the Penguins The Devils will start Johan Hedberg. Mooooooooooooooose.
It's also blue jersey night for the Pens.
Season Series: 1-1-0
Last meeting that counted: February 9, 2013. Devils won 3-1.
What we said in our recap:
The third period of this game was comparable to the last minutes of an NBA game where teams get called for fouls every trip down the court.
It's lame to blame officiating, and that isn't why the Pens lost. But holy crap. The refs looked like they got caught up calling the game tight and they never stopped. It was actually comical, but not really.
The Pens gave the Devils 10 powerplays...
